Lauren Marsden - Conjoined Realities 4th June - 6th July 2019

David Whitworth 17th Nov 2019 - 12th Jan 2020

Since his recent passing, holding onto her father’s memory has opened a window to an unfamiliar place. This place was his working life, a part of who he was that had been left untold. This was until the finding of his photographs that he took during his time as a precision engineer at Smiths Dock & Richardson and Westgarthes. These photographs evoked a sense of realisation of this other life that he left at the front door of the family home.

Gavin Vaughn - Coming of age in a biohacking era 18th Jan 2019 - 14th March 2020 There are a growing number of individuals and subcultures who are exploiting advances in science and technology in order to enhance and manipulate their own bodies, this process is often referred to as transmogrification. A quick search online and you will most likely be shocked by the number of tutorials and videos that demonstrate the necessary steps to hack your own body using the principles of biomimicry or on how to manipulate your own DNA.

Rememorial 16th July - 17th Aug 2019 Rememorial WWI represents the experiences of Tees Valley residents in the months after the Armistice of November 1918 as society came to terms with peace in the run up to Peace Day on July 19th. This dynamic, visual experience brings together artefacts and personal narratives to explore perspectives relating to discharged military personnel, empowerment of women, coping with disability, bereavement and social change.

Claire Baker - Place, Home, Loss & Legacy 28th Sept - 2nd Nov 2019 A Textile Exhibition by Claire A Baker This exhibition documents the artist research carried out in the homes of a number of the Chernobyl ‘Babushkas’ using the action of making, skills sharing and working together as a bonding device. The process bringing isolated people together not only within communities but also across cultural and geographical divides.


Music of the Spheres 21st Sept – 9th Nov 2019 Music of the Spheres is a collaboration between UK artist Charlotte Jarvis, scientist Dr. Nick Goldman and classical musicians The Kreutzer Quartet. Music of the Spheres used bioinformatics technology developed by Nick at the European Bioinformatics Institute in 2012 to encode a musical recording onto DNA for the first time. The DNA has been suspended in soap solution and used by Charlotte to create performances and installations filled with bubbles. The ‘recording’ fills the air, pops on visitors’ skin and literally bathes the audience in music.

Ellen Ranson Under the Eaves 18th Jan – 14th Mar 2020 The artists work aims to perform the arrogance and ego associated with the Abstract Expressionist male painter archetype.

Gallery and museum spaces have been typically dominated with white male artists’ representations of the female figure.

Hartlepool Art Club 72nd Annual Exhibition 16th Nov 2019 – 11th Jan 2020 / Preview 15th November This popular exhibition by local artists includes representative and experimental work in a variety of techniques and subject matter.

Abstract expressionism is emblematic of these issues, whereby female artists of the era were marginalised and disregarded, whilst male artists rose to prominence. This blueprint can be applicable to contemporary patriarchal power structures.
